called again and said: "General, I
don't think I will leave you that S10,

A False Imprmlon Corrected Fan
Aaierlran KspnelMoa Railroad Fares
and Hotel Hate Low as Could be
Espeeted. y
Buffalo, N. Y., July 30. A Joint
meeting of railway passenger agents,
hotel and newspaper men was held
this afternoon with the view of adopt
Ing some means for correcting so far
as possible the Impression that ap
pears to prevail at distant points that
railway rates to tbe Pan-American Ex
position are high and that hotel rates
In Buffalo are exceasive. Tbe confer
ence revealed the fact that Buffalo can
accommodate two hundred thousand
visitors In IU private houses and ho
tels at rates ranging front flfty cents
to two dollars per night, and that no
one need pay mora than on dollar
for a first-class lodging In a private
house, it waa also shown that the
railroad rate la lower than for any
former exposition for a five, ten or
fifteen day ticket, according to dis
tance, being at the rata of one far
plus on dollar for th round trip,
from all parts of tbe country. Th
Niagara Falls cheap, one-day special
excursions of former years, when
trains wer overcrowded and everyone
subjected to great discomfort, are re
mem bared only so far aa th low rat
la concerned, and thla la quoted as
bowing what might b don. Th
passenger agents assert that th pres
ent half rata are aa low a can rea
sonably be expected. Aa extension of
th present limit haa been looked for,
as it gives too abort a time for anyons
to see tbe big spoaltlon, but it haa
ot yet been modified. Other points

Our Monkey
A series of careful experiments with
monkey has recently been conducted
by Professor Edward L. Thorndlk to
ascertain tbe power and process by
which these animals acquire knowl
edge. He has reached the conclusion
that there la no warrant for the pop
ular Idea that mffnkeys and other ani
mals learn from human example and
by the processes followed by man. But,
th experimenter aays, the fact that
monkeys do not possess the human
types of Ideas must not be taken aa
evidence that they are no nearer rela
tives to us mentally than are the other
lower animals. On the contrary, they
occupy an intermediate position In
every main psychological feature be
tween mammals in general and the hu
man apecles. The essentials in an In
ventory of an animal's mental capaci
ties are its sense powers, the kinds of
movements it can make and their deli
cacy, complexity and number, Its In
stincts or the sum of those tendencies
to feel and act which it has apart from
experience or learning and its method
of learning or of modifying Ita be
havior to suit the multitudinous cir
cumstances of life. In each of these
respects the monkeys show kinship
with man. In their motor equipment
monkeys possess first of all the muscu
lar coordinations necessary to sustain
an upright position and consequently
the use of the forelimbs. The move
ments of these forelimbs are more in
number and suited to more complex
and varied tasks than are those of
lower animals. The attractlveneas of
the monkey cage In a zoological gar
den is largely due to the similarity of
the monkeys' movements and our own.
The monkey not only has a body like
a man's, but he also uses It like a man.
Our native tendencies are so metamor
phosed by the education of a civilized
environment that in adult age they
seldom appear In recognizable form.
But If we take human beings at from
6 months to 3 years of age or later we
find plenty ot traits that appear in the
monkeys. In fact, the human instinct
which is perhaps of prime importance
in human mentality, the Instinct which
perhaps is the real cause of many ot
our most boasted powers, has its clear
prototype and homologue in the monk
ey. I refer to the instinctive enjoy
ment of physical and mental activity
in general, to the tendency to act and
feel as much aa possible, regardless
of any ulterior practical considera
tions, which we sometimes call de
structiveness or constructlveness and
MeJkirig a.
First, the model is covered with a
thick layer of pasteboard in a moist
state. When it Is dry, a sharp knife is
passed around It so as to separate the
pasteboard ' coat into two hemispher
ical shells, which are then taken oft
the model and united at the cut edges
with glue. The hollow sphere thus
formed Is the skeleton ot the globe
that is to be.
The next thing is to cover it with a
coating of white enamel, about one
eighth ot an inch In thickness. When
this is done the ball is turned into a
perfect roundness by a machine. The
iron rod running through the center
ot the original model, and projecting
at both ends through the surface, has
left boles In the new globe, which
serve for the north and south poles,
and through these a metal axis is run
to represent the axis of the earth.
Then the surface Is marked off with
For several years the various com
panies have been endeavoring to se

tbe resistance strength of steel rails,
and the tests made by tbia body have
fully demonstrated the fact that the

method of rolling rather than to any

Speculations regarding the age of tbe

cumstances, whereof tbe cooling of th

geologists over this latter question still

If be haa any psychological Insight,

Watch a monkey and you cannot enu
merate the thing he does, cannot dis
cover the stimuli to which he reacts,
cannot conceive tbe raison d'etre Of his
pursuits. Everything appeals to him.
He likes to be active for the aake of
activity. The observer who haa prop
er opportunities and takes proper
pains will find this Intrinsic interest to
hold true of mental activity as well.
Finally, in their method of learning,
although monkeya do not reach the
human stage of a rich life of ideas, yet
they carry tbe animal method of learn
ing by the selection of impulses and as
sociation of them with the different
sense impressions, to a point beyond
that reached by any other ot the lower
animals. In this, too, they resemble
